I had wanted to get a lot of sewing done this weekend. In reality I didn't get as much done as I wanted. I did, however, catch up on my sleep, which was wonderful. I closed my eyes on Saturday afternoon for a quick nap, and didn't wake up until Saturday evening. I slept for three hours. By the time I woke up, basically all my sewing time for Saturday was gone.
Today I started by cutting out all the pieces for Brookie's Snow White costume. I bought and washed all the fabric Friday. I'm going to start pinning and cutting out all the pieces tomorrow. I decided to make Brooklyn the smallest size for the pattern (1/2) even though it's a little big. I figure she can wear it for awhile that way.
After cutting out all of the pieces for the costume I decided to work on the Elastic Waist dress that Julie had ordered the other day. I thought it would be easy and I would be able to finish it today. While it wasn't as easy as I had thought, I was able to finish it. I am super happy with the way that it turned out. I hope it's everything that Julie hoped it would be.
The dress is fairly simple. It's just an elastic waist, a yard of fabric, and a pre-made tank top. I grabbed the tank top yesterday at Forever 21. Since I had to cut the tank top short, I decided to add some ruffles. The skirt is just a simple gathered skirt, except for a few pleats that I added on the right hand side. Like I said before, I really really like how it turned out.
The skirt looks a little weird in this picture, but the ruffles are a little easier to see.
Hubs took a lot of pictures of me this time. This one I have my eyes closed, like basically every picture anyone ever takes of me. Classic Margie. I like it.
In addition to the dress I worked on a doll for Isabelle's dollhouse this weekend. I had a really tough time with the doll. In the end, I think it looks okay, but it was really hard. The doll is really tiny, and the pieces were so small to sew, and stuff and turn. I find it much much easier making clothes...
I wanted to put a tag on the doll, but it was soooo small I didn't know where to add it. So, instead of a tag, I decided to tattoo "DD" on the dolls butt.
That's all I managed to sew this weekend. Tomorrow the Snow White sewing starts. Wish me luck!
I decided to link my post up to a few parties.....I mean...why not right?
